J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Blood Father

You must admit, Mel Gibson is good in this movie. Whether you like the person Mel Gibson or not, this is a different story; and, yeah, surely he makes it difficult to like him. Here, as John Link, he is doing fine because he’s essentially playing the uncomfortable parts of himself. He is not only fighting for his daughter in trouble; but in reality he is fighting with his inner demons & the evils of his character.
